The south of France

Sometimes in life all does not work in the way and with the timing we desire.
And when we are faced with the crossroad we can go only one way
If we go left… what of the right. what could have been.
But as I go up into the hills to visit my friend on an olive farm
and the great mistral wind arrives as I do… I know it is good.
Left has worked well… next time I will go right and then who knows
But siting in a tree that has existed and produced some of the best olive oil in France
for over a thousand years I know it doesn’t really matter.
This tree has outlived many many people who have had great lives
I think all that matters is that we enjoy the time we have
And that in each moment we feel it as deep as possible.
Thank you old tree for the lesson… Thank you old friend.
